Although the still images from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter have done little to ignite excitement for director Timur Bekmambetov's mashup of history and horror, Fox changes everything with this action-packed teaser trailer. It's pretty fantastic.
Produced by Tim Burton, the film is based on Seth Grahame-Smith's bestselling 2010 novel chronicling the secret life of the ax-wielding 16th president, who we’re told waged a clandestine lifelong war against the bloodsuckers after one of them killed his mother.
Grahame-Smith wrote the screenplay for the film, which stars Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Anthony Mackie, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Jimmi Simpson, Robin McLeavy, Alan Tudyk and Rufus Sewell. Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter opens June 22.
